Frequently Asked Questions
Please click on the relevant questions below to learn more about the MADE IN GREEN label.
What is MADE IN GREEN?
MADE IN GREEN by OEKO-TEX® is a traceable product label that applies exclusively to textiles:
- Made with materials tested for harmful substances.
- Made in environmentally friendly facilities.
- Made in safe and socially responsible workplaces.
The MADE IN GREEN product label can be awarded to any kind of textile product anywhere in the world at any stage of the textile supply chain. Labelled products can easily be traced, thus offering new levels of transparency to consumers and business partners alike.
What are the benefits of the MADE IN GREEN label?
The MADE IN GREEN label communicates that labelled textiles are not only tested for harmful substances (certified with the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®) but also sustainably produced in accordance with OEKO-TEX® guidelines. The label offers the opportunity to have visibility to every component of the production stream. The MADE IN GREEN label provides reliable help for consumers who, thanks to the label, want to make more sustainable personal purchase decisions.
How long does a MADE IN GREEN label remain valid?
For the label issuer, the validity of the label ends after one year. It must then be renewed. If there are any changes in the supply chain regarding MADE IN GREEN conditions, a new label must be issued.
A buyer of the MADE IN GREEN labelled textiles will be able to trace information available from that label for 5 years.
Every MADE IN GREEN label shows either a product ID or a QR code. What is the purpose of this ID?
Each issued MADE IN GREEN label has an individual product ID. The product ID, in the form of a number and/or a QR Code, shows where the product was made and that the product has been tested for harmful substances and produced sustainably in accordance with OEKO-TEX® guidelines. This information can be found by entering the product ID number at www.madeingreen.com or by scanning the QR code with your mobile device.
What detailed information appears with the product ID or the QR code on the MADE IN GREEN label?
The information displayed with the product ID is:
- The MADE IN GREEN labeled article.
- A map of all stages involved in the supply chain.
- Confirmation that this garment is MADE IN GREEN.
